Well, he might have had something interesting to say.

Too bad he's such a condescending jackoff that he couldn't get it out.

Haha, wow.

That was interesting, I'm surprised CNBC didn't shut that interview down after he made a fool of the host. By the way, does anyone else think that the host looks like that one guy off the Muppets? Beaker I think his name was.

Anyway, I like the analysis that was made on the first page of this thread, that the market is backwards, makes perfect sense while it makes no sense at all.

Tried to put it on here directly.

Failed miserably mind you.

If history repeats itself, this guy could be the new "mad prophet of the airwaves!" Network.. you know.. He's mad as hell and he's not going to take it anymore!!! I understand what he's going through, it's a real shock to find out how things really are. He'll get through it.

I'm going to barf If I hear how we should be like China one more time. The Chinese goverment owns major portions of all the public companies and banks that are traded there. They force companies to merge and split. If we got any closer to the way China is, guys like Macke would implode on TV everyday. If you want to be like China then you want to be an oppresive socialist country. China has far to go before capitalism removes their overriding socialistic behavior. If anything China is going along with capitalism so they can bankrupt america. Our leaders are dumb enough to fall for it.

Hey guys,
I'm new, this is my first post! I've been lurking for a while and have finally gotten the courage. Anyway, this was a very interesting video to watch from a clinical standpoint, funny but sad as well
As a psych nurse I have two terms for you regarding this gentleman...word salad and loose association. I'm still undecided as to if he is chemically impaired or is having a nervous breakdown?! This video is bizarre!!

Read some of the posts on the first page if you haven't already, and you'd get alot of attention if you made a introduction thread, right here you'll get lost in the waves of ats pages.

Welcome though, they guy is just clearly stating that everything in the market is fooey.

Look at the other guys and whose paying them and who there workin for, and guess what they think is going to happen good things with there companies, whilst he looks around in a state of wtf are kidding me!

Jobless claims are higher then ever, gdp is down greatly, but the market and wall st brokers along with the top ten are making huge profits.....

I think he was trying to tell us in the only way he thought he could that what were seeing happening in the Market today is not whats supposed to be happening. It doesn't take a degree in economics to know that the market should be plunging right now and it's not. GM crashed. Over 40,000+ jobs gone in one day and the market doesn't even flinch. It just doesn't make any sense at all. Watch for the phony employment numbers in the coming weeks. Those folks whos unemployment insurance is about to expire are no longer going to be considered unemployed. That's right folks. If your unemployment benefits expire and your only source of income stops coming in, whether you have found another job or not, then the govt. considers you no longer unemployed and you will be taken off the unemployed list. The people behind the curtain are not going to pull the plug until they have unloaded as much of those useless stocks on us as they can.

I think really, we are waiting for them to pull the plug, noone is quit sure what happens then, surely the coutnry doesn't die, but I doubt any great good will come of it, eventually your going to have to pay back the 100 Trillion dollars, eventually jobless count is going to be 'EVERYONE' at this rate, foreclosures will be a like weeds in a garden everywhere.

And I bet my ss that the market is still hovering around 8,000.

The markets a sham, and everyone is seeing it now, it's not an indicator anymore, jobless claims and gdp is. But even that is being grossly contourted.

He said it without words, "I'm pissed as all hell". We are. He is.

He works for too many people. Doesn't know who to speak for or what side to take this time. There is no answer that can make everybody happy so he stumbles through it. Also he has to stay true to his own opinion and beliefs. Probably best that he didn't make sense or he would have hurt too many people's feelings that he works close to, every day.

I really like the way he comes across in those other videos... He say's all BOA investors should be mad because BOA is not communicating to it's INVESTORS, then the lady next to him says everyone should buy BOA, and doesn't even address/dismiss what he just said! Rofl. Now that's a lady who can stick to the script!

He was angry and close to weeping at the same time.

Give it up to modern psychotropic drugs. They destroy a human mind.

He's obviously reached the point where he's decided to stop wasting his life being part of the problem ...

Desperation, courage. or just plain frustration ?

Take your pick ... the end result is the same - he's out !

IMHO, by his own choice , so good for him !

Free will in action.

This guy has definitely gone crazy.... If your idea of crazy is a man coming to grips with the reality that our whole financial system is based on a lie.

A lie involving the media ,education, politicians, wallstreet and the banks. He is making a point in the only way he can.

He is smart enough to know that he can not just come right out and say
" wake up America! your country and financial system is all a carefully crafted elution" and still have a job, come tomorrow.

His point was not caught by many here. For that reason he will have a job tomorrow but he will quite tomorrow I would bet.

I can't see him feeding lies knowingly to the public from hear on in. I feel his pain. I remember the exact moment I came to the realization that I was living in a crazy world run by crazy people and were the majority are unknowingly manipulated into a state of denial.

Ignorance is bliss so they say! Who are they exactly? Know one really knows.

"Keep an open mind" would be my thoughts on what will happen in this beautiful crazy world. Good always wins over evil....allways. Keep positive! "They" are slowly coming undone.

Two types of (happy) & losers (unhappy). When I think Jeff Macke...I think "trader"....and from his demeanor in the two CNBC segments I watched...he was definitely the "unhappy" variety. Along with his contractual issues , and perhaps a justifiable distain for Dennis Kneale , I still believe he was positioned off-side.

For sake of comparison here's a link to Jeff Macke unchained. Three part vid , produced outside the parameters of CNBC....

Indeed let's hope so. To wake up in the later years of one's life must be devastating... but worth it. I have the highest hopes for him to find happiness in truth, whatever it is.

An entire generation of baby boomers grew up in a world where all they had to do was work hard and honest and invest in their 401ks. On top of that they'd have a decent bit of money from their social security check.

That is the world they grew up in. And it was a total lie. It was never real. Entire lives built on, planned around this lie of a world that never existed for a moment. People should be angry at BOA, on most every level of humanity, they just don't realize it.

It made perfect sense to me, hes simply frustrated because everyone around him is peddling a lie that cannot be sustained, and he wonders why no one has caught on yet. Thats why he keeps going back to the child references, simply stating what most on this site have know for some time and anyone who has studied the economy.

hes simply woken up and its shaken him.

i think the guy has lost it. He's mixing drug terms with his advice. To me it seems as if he is saying.. " the drugs were good guys but it's almost time till we have to go cold turkey"


posted on May, 21 2009 @ 12:08 AM
he is basically saying he just now realized that this whole financial thing is a puppet show, government take over and a NWO agenda.

posted on May, 21 2009 @ 12:09 AM
Macke, sounds like a man who woke up to the reality that the game is fixed and he's rightly angry about it.Who in their right minds would not be? the bankers and the power brokers are attempting to tighten their grip on the planet and those who are aware of this are few and far between.While others simply ignore it at their own peril.
